At the age of seventeen he emigrated to the United States and enrolled in the Mannes School of Music in New York. His long association with the New York City Opera began when he joined the company as a rehearsal pianist in 1943. He made his conducting début in 1944 with Johann Strauss’ Gypsy Baron. In 1957 Rudel was appointed Music Director of the City Center Opera, which in time developed into one of the best and most enterprising companies in the United States. In 1979 he left his post at the New York City Opera to extend his symphonic activities in the United States and across Europe. He became music director of the Buffalo Philharmonic, a position he held until 1994, and forged a special link with the Orchestra of St Luke’s, a collaboration which has led to a continuing series of recordings. In addition to his orchestral and opera conducting, Julius Rudel has served as an important musical administrator in a variety of venues.
